    Default Welding cart

    Well stage I is complete and now I am getting ready to add electrical, redo the top and add cable hooks when I sort out my working approach angle.

    The angle hold my MM180 and the flat holds my Hypertherm Powermax30. The rear holds 2 C25 bottles.

    Yes you are right on that and that is the result of 2 things: Shortage of shop space and since I cannot weld in the shop I have to take it outside and I wanted some tires that would not sink into the gravel.

    I think I am going to extend the tires to the outside and lower the cart.

    Gawd, I love plasma cutters and a welder a guy can do anything and fix his mistakes too....

    Cart looks good, I also would put the tires outboard, especially if taking it outside.



    What kind of floor is in the shop, looks like diamond plate tile?

    LOL, its the reason why I cannot weld inside...its diamond plate plastic. You can see the install and conversion of garage to shop garage here:

    I had the same problem, having put down PVC tile in my shop/garage prior to getting the welder. I have purchased 2 sheets of 5x10 ft 11 ga. sheet, to cover a 10x10 ft area, and it has worked out well. Tread plate may have been better, but was more expensive. I actually like the ease of rolling my welding table or cart on it. It only gets a bit slippery if I let too much abrasive dust accumulate on it. Sheets were $140 each, if memory serves. Yeah, not exactly the way I had wanted to spend that money, but, I had no intention of welding outside, for the long run.

    I like the layout of your cart, other than previously discussed wheel position.
